With Elddis's new Camino launch hyped as the new caravan with the "whoa factor" we take you behind the scenes at an Elddis preview event to see what it is all about

Following the considerable changes to the lineup this year Elddis is keen to showcase their new models.

There will be 56 vehicles on show, 42 caravans and 14 motorhomes and is the culmination of years of preparation.

There is considerable excitement at the new layouts and changes to the lineup with a clear favourite being the developments in the Compass Camino range.

Seen as the 'stand-out' vehicle across all the new models but others such as Affinity received attention for its furnishing and colour touches.

As can be seen in the video a great deal of effort clearly goes into arranging the preview, with a sizeable team on hand to get it all ready.
